Easter souvenir DIY: the sequence of work
1. From a thick cardboard cut the basis for crafts in the form of eggs. The sample size in our master class is 18x13 cm. 2. Prepare a napkin for decoupage. Lightly spray it with water and iron it with a warm iron to smooth out folds and creases. 3. Cut out the napkin image of the chicken, carefully trimming the background. Napkins with pictures of roosters or chickens are also suitable - the Easter theme will be preserved. Do not forget about Easter hares! 4. Separate the top bright layer of the napkin from the inside. 5. Apply PVA glue to the workpiece. On a wet surface stick a chicken drawing. Smooth out with a wide brush, lightly pressing the brush to the surface and soaking the image with glue. 6. Departing 0.5 cm from the edge, along the entire contour with a pencil, outline the ornament, indicating future locations for punctures. 7. Puncture the marked places with an awl or thick needle. 8. Thread embroidery burgundy or red color to stitch the ornament around the contour. Tip: If you like the idea of embroidery on cardboard, you can complicate the pattern and add additional colors of thread. 9. Cut the round nest out of the sisal floral packaging. Apply the PVA glue on the workpiece and glue the sisal. Since this material is coarse and fibrous, for a better gluing to the base, you need to place an Easter souvenir made with your own hands under the press for 15-20 minutes. Tip: sisal can be replaced with straw or dry grass. 10. Cut a second blank out of paper or cardboard. Glue it on the back side of crafts, closing stitches from embroidery: well, if the wrong side of the souvenir will also be neat. Place under the press for better bonding. eleven. Using a glue gun to glue the buttons on the sisal nest. White buttons are used for the sample, but they can be replaced with multi-colored ones of the same size. 12. On the reverse side of the craft, glue a magnet for attachment to a refrigerator or a hood. A handmade Easter souvenir in the form ofeggs ready!
